The Spiritual Forces of Evil, Part One

Even as an old man, Daniel listened to God and sought His face as he tried to understand the ongoing conflicts in the world. The fearful, frail prophet, still faithful to his Lord, was shown that earthly struggles reflect a greater conflict in the heavenly realms. In this message by Alistair Begg, we are challenged to follow Daniel’s example by remaining faithful to God’s Kingdom purposes as long as He gives us life, realizing we may not see the outcome until we see Him in glory.

Faith Under Fire

Many of us have heard the familiar stories of Daniel from childhood: brave, committed, and obedient, Daniel held to his convictions, interpreted dreams, and faced the lions’ den. But does our familiarity extend to the real hero of the story?

In this series examining Daniel’s faith under the fire of trial, Alistair Begg explains that at the heart of these familiar stories is a good and sovereign God who works powerfully for the good of His people and the glory of His Name. We can be encouraged that the same God who reigned over the events in Daniel’s ... More 

An Encouraging Word

Following Paul's example, Alistair Begg encourages listeners with an essential foundation of our hope in Christ – the grace of God. Christians have been united to Christ and to His people by grace, and although salvation in Christ is by faith alone, our faith is never alone. Genuine Christian belief is marked by works of faith, costly love, and steadfast hope. Understanding that our hope comes from the grace of God alone should establish in us a response of genuine gratitude.


Our God Reigns, Part One

As a young man, Daniel resolved to remain obedient to God throughout his life. As we encounter him in his later years, we find that he stood firm in his decision to live for the Lord. Alistair Begg teaches that Daniel was distinguished because of his obedience to God and faithfulness in his work, yet for these reasons he was also despised by his peers. Looking to Daniel as an example, we are challenged to consider what it looks like to trust God and serve Him faithfully in the midst of a world that opposes Him.

Trusting God in the Lion's Den

In Chapter 6, Daniel had become an older man who had served God faithfully throughout his life, and his character was known to the King Darius. Alistair Begg walks us through the story of Daniel in the den of lions, a story marked by a great trust in a faithful God who is able to deliver from death those who trust in Him. As Daniel’s story provided encouragement to the exiles then, so does the Gospel of Jesus provide hope to the exiles here in this fallen world.

Mission Accomplished

As the Apostle Paul reflected on his life, it was Christ’s work that he saw: converting him and changing his heart, commissioning him to proclaim and preserve the true Gospel, and strengthening him by grace to persevere through suffering and struggle. In describing Paul’s mission and means, Alistair Begg encourages us to consider our own lives and continually look to Jesus for strength and direction.

Fulfill Your Ministry

What is pastoral ministry really about, at its core? The four-fold directive that the Apostle Paul gave to Timothy provides a clear perspective: always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry. In this message, Alistair Begg explores these timeless imperatives and encourages Christian ministers to persevere in preaching the Gospel even in the middle of a challenging culture.

A Christmas Carol

People around the world enjoy the familiar words of “Once in Royal David’s City” during the Christmas season, but few ponder the deep truths that the carol teaches. In this Christmas Eve message, Alistair Begg explains that this simple children’s song illustrates that God became man to save sinners. The Baby of Bethlehem now reigns in majesty and offers to us the gift of salvation.

The Annunciation

Among the core teachings of Christianity, the virgin birth can be one of the most difficult for the human mind to accept. Yet in Luke's Gospel account, we see Mary respond in trust to the angel's mysterious message. Alistair Begg encourages us to consider the unique nature of Jesus' miraculous birth in the context of His divine mission and to respond, like Mary, in simple faith.

Elizabeth and Zechariah

After years of prophetic silence, God announced the birth of John the Baptist to one faithful couple. As Alistair Begg explains, the announcement illustrates the mystery of God's work throughout history. The events surrounding the birth of Jesus remind us that the providence of God can be seen at work in ordinary events, both good and bad.
